of the euro currency. boy, we went from basically trading a 133, now to trading 131, and today is a big down day. one market that actually is getting a little bit of a breath, but nothing on the scale of what the dollar and some of the other currencies are gaining on the euro, the dollar/yen. the yen has improved marginally today. but we're still on 87 handle on the dollar versus the yen. you want to pay attention to foreign exchange. we still have some other data today. the minutes we'll get later will be scrutinized, especially considering, you know, federal reserve and how it figures into a post-cliff presealing debate. >> i'm glad you brought up the euro. dennis gartman did that earlier this morning and we didn't talk about it at the time. what do you think is happening? why has the euro turned around here? >> well, to me, i think that what the euro represents, or what the relationship between the euro and other currencies represent continues to be exaggerated by shifts in the ultimate dynamics of trying to score the economy. then you had in the big position growth that we've seen, and t
think germany has done what was necessary to al w allow -- to make it clear that the euro is here to stay, and that's been a tremendous relief for the markets. so calm has returned. the european banking system, the interbank market, has revived so there's a general sense of let's say almost euphoria that the crisis is over. i think that is somewhat premature. because the fundamental internal inconsistencies in the dis-tim have not been addressed, and actually, therefore, you face political dangers. the euro is transforming the european union into something very different from the original conception which was a voluntary association of equal states, and instead of that, the financial created a two-class system where the euro, the creditors and debtors and the creditors are in charge. the political situation i think is going to get worse. i think the next year, next two years perhaps, are going to be very cuffy if the european union survives forever. i don't think europe can live politically with are a situation where there's are a center, namely germany, and countries like italy a
. we have to grow profitably, jim. >> right. >> if you look at our revenues, we report in euros, but i'll give you round numbers in dollars. we're over a $20 billion u.s. software company. we're delivering much more than $5.5 billion in profit. so the company has to grow profitably. most importantly, though, we want to focus on the customer. if we can have the users of our technology love us, we'll reach the 1 billion users by 2015. we'll be a greater than 20 billion euro software company which is somewhere closer to $30 billion. and that 35% operating margin so we deliver a lot of flow through to shareholders. this is who we are. profitable revenue growth driven by customer innovation, it is all about winning for the customer. >> you've also tapped in -- i've been trying to figure out ever since i heard it on the intel call how to make money off the tablet, which is the phone and the tablet. you guys have figured it out. >> our big idea is to be device agnostic. so all the devices are supported by -- >> you don't care. >> it's all good. >> samsung -- >> it's all good. we want to run b
obama. >> they are not all official and not euro balls, but some groups are holding their own parties. this evening, hundreds packed the carnegie institute of science in northwest d.c. for the new mexico inaugural ball. the event was sponsored by the new mexico state society of washington d.c. >> a website held an inaugural ball as well tonight at the national museum of american history. s were invited to look at exhibitions, including one on the 1963 march on washington. the group was celebrating its fifth anniversary covering news, politics, and culture from a black perspective. >> says turned into more than a big celebration. . it is also marking a national day of service for martin luther king jr.. president obama and the first family volunteered their time at an elementary school in northeast d.c. >> i am always reminded that he said, everybody wants to be first. everybody wants to be a drum major. but, if you're going to be a drum major be a drum major for service. be a drum major for justice. >> vice president biden spend the day at the d.c. armory filling at care packages for
. the currency markets, open for trading for a lot longer today than stocks. the euro is still below 133, the recent high. it's interesting to see that the risk-on currencies are a bit to the upside. >> watch gold, too. i think gold, 12th year of good performance. >> yes. >> i would emphasize gold should be part of people's portfolios. >> while i don't disagree with you, because i've been wrong on gold two years in a row, silver better performer last year than gold. >> numbers are numbers. i find that the gld is just a very, you know, good way, i hope it goes down, the rest of your portfolio goes up. but remember, in the last 12 years we've had deflation, inflation, good control, bad control, but gold is steady because gold is in short supply in the world. >> i thought we were being positive. i'm optimistic for the next year or so. ten years out, different story. oil prices, right? while they've gone up in the last couple weeks, gas prices are down. >> gasoline. >> gasoline. and nat gas remains fairly low. >> nat gas at four-month lows right now. >> let's not underestimate the extra mone
of the euro and to some degree make monetary policy tighter over here. we can quickly look at the bond space. italy did go to auction as we continue to see reasonable demand for peripheral debt. the paper is selling off a little bit, but still 4.17%. investors showed up to bid on the two-year zero coupon and the five-year inflankz flagz linked bond. italy and spain continue to front load. forex, though, telling you more of this story, which is that interestingly fluff, we're seeing kind of a risk off attitu attitude. the same has been the case for loony, which now people are starting to talk about in parity with the u.s. dollar. the dollar/yen, down about 0.3% to 90.62. the euro/dollar, 1.3446. so even though it's difficult, the u.s. dollar, guys, has been performing a little better over the last couple of weeks helped by renewed growth prospects. it's one reason why a lot of people are focused on the see kweter, that chatter over the weekend about it happening could put more pressure on the greenback. back to you guys. >> kelly, thanks so much. next time, you should fly over. >> what happen
rose to 11.18% in november. that is a euro area high. if you move forward into decent, you can see the aumt of prices. they're prizing in some easing from the central bank down the road. quick look at what is happening at the bond curve. 5.1, just under 5.1%. the spanish treasury outlining the funds you will need for 2013. you can expect they're going to take as many advantage of these conditions as possible. italy, 4.3% on the ten-year. the gilt yield, above 2%. we will explore what's happening with growth going forward. slipping over now to currencies, here is what we've seen some interesting moves. may not look like much this morning. the euro/dollar is roughly flat. but the dollar/yen moving down by about .3%. it was really actually some support from the euro that came from comments out of japan. japan will be investing, bonds buying in the esm. that is an order to indicate some level of support for the eurozone project. but it also works to help, yes, weaken the yen. on that note, back over to you. >> it's always about the yen. kelly evans in london. the can. thank you. >> we'
? >> pmi, the best rating in a while. the euro weakening against the u.s. dollar, watch thanksgiving yesterday, continues to trend today. there is a bid to safety in today's session. i hate to use that phrase you to put it simply, the safe havens out there as we are staring down the barrel dealing with the debt ceiling and spending cuts. >> i thought they would have a tailwind rather than a headwind on currency. not in sync with a bullish picture, got to understand that one of the great reasons we have been able to have a good run, the dollar getting weaker. and also, unless people are short today, i know people are short, nordstrom's very heavily, short target, short gap, that is the only thing really going up. the mean time, i keep pointing out these dollar stores, they are horrendous today. family dollar really terrible. >> family dollar down 12%. >> you have nordstrom going higher, family dollar going lower, people felt that maybe the dollar stores would catch a bid and nordstrom would have weakness because of the high-end consumer being worried that clearly has not been the case
mechanism in order to protect the euro. now we have it. now it is in place. and that's an excellent advantage. on the other hand, for financial and fiscal solidity we have the so-called fiscal compact. this, too, is in force ever since the beginning of this year, and there's now a particular point where we have to continue working, so we have improved fiscal consolidation, we have better, binding commitments, better tools, we have better mechanisms. we also have as regards banking supervision made considerable progress as of 2014, we will have a banking supervision in place in the eurozone in which, obviously, also other european countries can participate. but we're still lacking, and that's something that we need to do this year, 2013, is to see to it that over the next few years to come we also have a convergence in competitiveness within the common euro area. so not somewhere where we are sort of, um, expecting the lowest common denominator, but competitiveness that measures wealth against the best of us and against the best on the global markets. and showing us access to global
currency. the euro is the alternative and look at the problem they are having there. the dollar has gone down in value by 50% against the euro in the last decade. that's because our debt tripled in that amount of time 1971 the so-called nixon shock of wage and price controls and the gold standard ever since then since there has been dollar inflation. it has been fairly consistent in terms of its value, hasn't it? >> no. it's done with up and down. like i said, it's t. lost a tremendous amount of value against the euro. and the issue is the fed just prints money. it just keeps interest. in for the economy. there is going to be inflation. prohibited oddly enough in richard virginia. there you go. look at these. v.a. is going to spend $22,000 to study a virginia alternative currency. that kind of a waste of taxpayer money? >> you know, in a way it is. the issue is we have had, before we haven't just had the dollar forever. at one point, in 1836, there were every state had its own bank note. and there were 16,000 chartered types of currency. so easy to counterfeit. it d bs didn't work at all
in syria, another year of the war in gaza, the euro crisis, penn state, trayvon martin, petraeus, 2012 is a year in many ways, forget the phrase, sucked, which is why it's been worth it as ever to con come the things that did not suck. that did not suck about this year. legitimately without irony or only with a trace amount. behold a clear year that sucked much less than you remember it sucking. everybody on this show is a 13-year-old boy. they were all giggling over this. apparently someone drawing a circle around the florida panhandle is hilarious. whether it is chuck todd or this from cnn because he's putting his hands on it. members of my staff swear putting shapes on the state of florida is all problematic. yes, i get it. i get it less than most people. i do see something in the associated press map. mitt romney won the counties in orange, newt gingrich won the ones in red. do you see that? look closer. they totally saw it. it's a giraffe! best new thing in the world today. you are grounded, staffers. this photo of mitt romney in iowa in october 2007 is the greatest campaign trail
probably years and years to resolve. in the short term, the u.s. you can in the long term, the euro crisis is very substantial. >> let's add one more concern there apparently seems to be new concerns about brazil, a country that is supposed to be the economic dynamo, but now apparently seeing growth slowing. what's happening? >> brazil seeing trouble now. their main export is iron ore to china. with the slowing growth in china, china has now a surplus of iron ore, they are seeing less sales. but brazil has a lot of other things that might be helpful in the long run. they have the presalt oil, which could be billions and billions of barrels of oil that they will start coming on stream in the next five or ten years. they have a very strong agricultural economy. brazil actually, in the last quart earthquake the third quarter, grew much slowerer, .6%, the u.s. grew at 3.1% the third quarter. brazil has a way to go hopefully, able to rebound p >> hopefully indeed. all like to rebound. hal sirkin, a partner at the boston consulting group, oversees foreign markets. thank you very much. >> you're

they might be overwhelming like the euro crisis have been weathered. people from america are optimistic. those from emerging markets more so, but everywhere there is a sense of caution. in pwc's annual global ceo survey released this week, 52% saw no change from the current tepid economic environment. 28% saw decline and 18% said things will get better. it is still an improvement from last year when 48% predicted a decline. the last few years of recovery followed by slow downs of political crisis, of new terror attacks from north africa have made people weary of excessive optimism. things are stable, crises have been contained, there's some growth on the horizon, but no one's ready to declare that we've turned any corners. there are no bulls in davos. no countries taking center stage. one symbol of the mood, the big splashy parties that companies like google used to throw have been quietly discontinued. not that google couldn't afford it, by the way. they just had their first year with $50 billion in revenues. underlying this caution, i believe, is a sense that growth that people had go

earning a million euros should be thrown out as unfair. it had already been blasted as anti-entrepreneurial. it was branded at the government trying to balance the budget on the backs of the rich. the planned tax hike had sparked word that at least some high rollers were deciding to leave the country. but analysts say the high taxing french ruler is not really defeated. it was thrown out more on a technicality. government is planning to issue a rewarded tax bill and claps there were new tax hinges that the court left in part in mace. the french stock market seemed to like the message. it was up more than a half percent in a shortened trading day. >>> it looks like james bond can do it all. the recently released skyfall is now the most successful bond movie in franchise history. it has earned more than $1 billion worldwide. the film is only the 14th movie of all time to hit the $1 billion mark. others include the avengers and the dark knight rises. >>> adam housley has the details on the hollywood nation report. >> reporter: bilbo beats yank owe, ryan's resolution and kim is

euro skeptics warn seven are in recession. it's possible that germany falls into a recession as well. so they aren't out of the woods yet. don't get complacent about europe. did japan just start a currency war? announcing a full on assault on inflation. that's likely to weaken their currency and a lot. making it more difficult for the u.s. and europe to increase their exports. where does it end? what kind of unintended consequences could it bring? the third possible derailment, china. not the pace of their growth which has recovered. china worries more about political risk because the country has new leadership for the first time in ten years. and if the country is going to keep growing, they must do some very controversial reforms. that's going to lead to some kind of internal distress as investors try to hold on to power. and the final wild card, iran and its nuclear ambitions. there it's hard for the markets to measure what could happen. >> okay, michelle. thank you. a group of bipartisan senators meanwhile have agreed on a proposal to overhaul immigration laws. let's get to eamon
feature or for all economists, particularly the advanced economies. force the euro area -- as far as the euro area is concerned, we think that a lot has been achieved in terms of policies, in terms of new tools in the tool box that the europeans have available to fight crisis, yet firewalls have not yet proven operational. progress needs to be made on banking union, and clearly continued if not further monetary easing will be appropriate in order to sustain demand. for the united states, we think that all sides should pull together in the national interest avoiding further avoidable policy mistakes that is failing to agree on increasing the debt ceiling on time and prior to that preferably and reaching agreement on medium-term debt reduction. that i mentioned earlier. for the nonadvanced economies, and i'm putting together the emerging markets as well as the low income countries, clearly those countries are faring at a much better pace in terms of growth. but everywhere i've traveled in the last two months in africa, in latin america and in asia there's always been a concern about
, euro survived the big crisis. is there some optimism there? >> reporter: well, schwab, head of the world economic forum, optimistic smiling, says the euro didn't collapse, europe didn't fall apart, there's economic growth in the united states, there's room for optimism. i can tell you if you talk to the ceos, most of the people are ceos and in business, they are not optimistic. there is a deficit of confidence, and that's because you have budgetary problems in the united states, you have the eurozone problem, you have china, india slowing down. these other issues are very much on their agenda. so, you and i, as the week will go on, will distill this into what really they're talking. at the moment, the one word to keep in mind, risk. where it lies at the moment. >> and if they think that it's risky, business people and they're trying to get a sense of where we are with the economy if they think it's risky, how is that impacting us? everyday folks here who are looking at their, you know, paychecks and homes and wondering if it's going to change, if it's going to get better. >>
